As beautiful as she is unpredictable, Trilly has had many offers to adopt her retracted because of her overly nervous character. Here at Torre Argentina she prefers the male volunteers to the ladies. Who will convince her not to discriminate?
As the large scar on his back shows, Tarek is a not so young, handsome black cat that has had a hard life. But he is doing very well here at the shelter. He is such a charmer that during the times he decides to disappear into the Sacred Area ruins, all the volunteers immediately miss him and worry!
Paoletto is a free spirit! Because he is lame, we thought we should protect him by keeping him in the nursery. But he managed to escape and now runs happily in the ruins of the Sacred Area, climbing everywhere and sleeping on the scaffolding! He worries us, but we see that he is happy to return to the shelter for food and petting, then a quick nap and he is off to the next adventure
Genziana is a beauty: beautiful with a wicked character! She could be a cat-model. They say she has the same temperament as Naomi Campbell … very hot-tempered!
A middle-aged cat, mistreated for his first part of life, has struggled to recover his health in Torre Argentina. After a year at the shelter we can say that he succeeded! A good giant, like the comic Obelix, who loves humans a lot.
When he has been found in 2010, Narciso had a herpes and because of it he l lost the sight in one eye. However he was a beautiful cat and we hoped to find him a house, but Narciso has preferred the freedom of the Area Sacra and by now we see him only at a safe (for him) distance. The right cat for people who love liberty very very very much!
Another cat that comes from the sea and become blind after a violent rhinotracheitis. At first she was terrified by the human and feline presence in the nursery, but she now recognizes the volunteers who bring food and is no longer afraid so she loves to be caressed.
Another beautiful and impossible lady! Joan C. it is an elderly cat that has refused the adoptions in definite way, but in Torre Argentina has found calm and love. What, when she wants, she reciprocates.
Although the elderly cute, round faced cat was cared for in a colony, he needed veterinary care for a condition called entropion, a nasty eye problem whereby eyelashes turning inward scratch the cornea and cause irritation, inflammation, pain and eventually affect vision. He became a permanent boarder in October 2017, underwent surgery but only the second time it was successful. Now Giotto looks forward to meeting his adopters at a distance in the nursery!
This shy cat that comes from the sea is FIV positive and blind due to a strong rhinotracheitis, but he will be happy to be adopted at a distance
